Bee Gees Singer Robin Gibb Wakes Up From Coma

Former Bee Gees singer Robin Gibb surprised his doctors after waking up from a coma and showing signs of recovery.

The 62-year-old fell into a coma earlier this month after developing pneumonia.

"Robin is fully conscious, lucid and able to speak to his loved ones," his doctors say in a statement.

"He is breathing on his own, with an oxygen mask. He is on intravenous feeding and antibiotics. He is of course, exhausted, extremely weak and malnourished."

"The road ahead for Robin remains uncertain but it is a privilege to look after such an extraordinary human being," it continues.

Gibb recently admitted he had been diagnosed with colon cancer, which spread to his liver, but said he was in remission from the disease.

"It is testament to Robin's extraordinary courage, iron will and deep reserves of physical strength that he has overcome quite incredible odds to get where he is now."
